Medical professionals have spent years telling overweight Americans to eat right and exercise—but obesity rates are still climbing. This may be, in part, because, as we've become more efficient in how we work, eat, and get around, we have engineered physical activity out of our daily routines.
This report looks at how planning processes, development regulations, and community participation can be used to ensure that development patterns facilitate everyday physical activity. Includes information about safe routes to school programs and accessible schools, along with case studies of planning active communities in Denver, San Diego, Portland, Nashville, Minneapolis, and more.
